Kim Stafford, poet and director of the Northwest Writing Institute at Lewis and Clark College, and his thoughts on the writing marathon model:

The beautiful leisure of the marathon model, I think it’s something that should happen in every teacher’s life, where we have abundant time to write. We write, we share, we talk, we write, we share…and these episodes of learning happen again and again and they really build on each other and your confidence as a writer—your sense of abundance as a thinker. You’re spiraling up and it’s a bird climbing into the wind and each episode builds on the last.
